Oil Price Conspiracy, 2004??

Earlier, I posted a suggestion about the manipulation of oil prices in the runup to the election. Here is an example of an earlier manipulation.

Woodward, Bob. 2006. State of Denial: Bush at War, Part III (NY: Simon & Schuster).

287: “Prince Bandar was back in the Oval Office on Friday, February 20, 2004, to meet with Bush, Rice and Card …. Bush … thanked Bandar for what the Saudis were doing on oil — essentially flooding the market and trying to keep the price as low as possible. He expressed appreciation for the policy and the impact it would have during the election year.”
